White- Dinner jacket Tuxedos are usually worn on tropical climes. Since dinner jackets are usually worn in black, white could still be a good choice to wear in events, but it's less seen on the red carpet. It would be a great head turner if you'd sport it in nightly events. Even James Bond uses white dinner jacket in places where it is warm. White Dinner Jackets aren't only worn for day use, even before; some of the princes of Wales put it on while eating their dinner.
It's not really white as what most of us would describe, but it's usually of creamier shade. A few men wear this kind of clothing because it's meant to look cool in hot weather. It exudes a cool yet elegant aura to it. It's most appropriately used when you feel like spending some time in the casinos or if you're time could still permit it, in a long cruise.
Fashion critiques and gurus emphasized that white dinner jacket tuxedos must not be worn before May and after September, unless you're going to tropical areas. It would definitely be inappropriate if you'd be wearing the jacket in an indoor dinner party in the month of November, most especially if you're not the host of the party. In sporting this clothing, you have to be very much aware of the event, the climate, and the event's theme, if you don't want to be mistaken as a drinks server.
White Dinner Jacket Tuxedos are a casual look. You may try wearing it in cream silk color with a black bow tie and patent leather shoes. A waistcoat or cummerbund may also be used. It looks good when men use a waistcoat with the same color as the bowtie under their white dinner jacket tuxedo. Though very fashion-inclined men goes with bright colors for the cummerbund and bowtie to go with their white dinner jackets tuxedos, it'd still be appropriate if you'd tone down the color into simple pastel shades. Using a bright red bowtie with a matching bright red cummerbund is usually irritating to the eyes.
Men usually find it cool to use silky cream dinner jacket tuxedos without a pocket in get-togethers because it looks definitely clean and simple. In the film Sabrina, there was a scene wherein most of the gentlemen in the party sported white dinner jacket tuxedos which are apt for the tropical-inspired party. Since it is a more casual the shirt could have a turndown collar. Dinner shirt without button studs are preferable too if you want to keep a casual look. Three INS for white dinner jacket tuxedos include elegant tuxedo, a beautiful two-piece wool touch suit and two-button mens suit.
If you want to look and feel cooler in warm weather, you may set aside the thought of using a waistcoat, instead use a cummerbund. The shawl goes very well with a cummerbund too. Peak and Notch Lapels could go with shawls too.
Just like the common dinner jacket itself, most men don't use ties for white dinner jacket tuxedos. You have to be very careful of what bowtie's color you're going to use because just a simple bowtie could either turn you to an elegant gentleman or a catering services crew. Most of the men these days are lost on its significance. A simple black bow tie will do. Timepieces aren't usually worn but you may just bring with you a pocket watch if you have one. Trousers are usually worn in black color. It may or may not have pockets, but it would be more preferred by many if the trousers won't have back pockets. It's a total no-no to fashion critiques.
Since men these days are very choosy probably brought out by the latest color trends, if you want to stand out, you may bring a modern twist to the usual white dinner jacket tuxedo attire. Men these days go to parties wearing a white dinner jacket tuxedo, with a folded trousers hem extending to a few inches below their knees. A shirt of simple pastel shades are worn under the white dinner jacket. Pale green and carnation pink could go with the dinner jacket too. Beige shirts even accentuate the creamy shade of the dinner jacket. Some use bohemian beaded necklaces if they're wearing a non-print shirt.
If ever you'd get a chance of having a swirls-printed shirt, under the white dinner jacket tuxedo, don't use any accessories anymore. The swirls on the shirt will give it the accessories it needs. You may or may not use waistcoat or cummerbund anymore.
As for the footwear, young men these days, use gladiator slippers. Gladiator shoes or slippers have been a hit for women in the year 2010, and now, it's time for the men to ramp it. Though gladiator slippers were worn during bloody entertainments ages before, now it's in for fashion. Wear it in a dark colors, like black and leather brown.
Keep in mind that there is right timeframe in wearing white dinner jacket tuxedos. A traditionalist will definitely tell you to not wear in the evening, but at daytime. If the event extends in the evening, you may change from your originally worn white-dinner jacket tuxedo to black tuxedo coat at five to six in the evening. But since people aren't sticking on the traditional fashion rules, you may just wear your white dinner jacket 'til the event ends. Plus, white attracts all possible colors that aren't white too, giving you the head turns as you pass by.
